I have a question regarding to Cathay Pacific's Business Class seat.
The aircraft is B777-300 ER and the seat design is the Reverse Herringbone.
When I looked at the seat map as well as the pictures of CX Business Class, it
seems it is quite difficult to talk to a seatmate if we are sitting on
the center pair seats.
As an information, my wife and I will be traveling with 2 young children, so
if they need our assistance, we have to stand up a little bit to help
Should all of us take the center pair seats or mix with the window seats ?
For instance, the children are sitting on the window seats while the parents are sitting on across the aisle.
We are looking forward to hear from you. Thank you.

I think it will be easier to assist them if you were next to them across the isle.

Yeah, agreed best to get the middle aisle seats and have your children take the window seats - but you'll still have to get up or at the very least turn around to check on them.

We've actually flown this aircraft many times with children and we parents always took the middle 2 and put the 2 children in the window seats ie take up whole row. It is difficult to talk in the middle however easy to keep an eye on the children across the aisle - and they also enjoy the window
Thank you so much all for your feedback which I greatly appreciate it.

I have watched a few families in business and to me the best set up is children in A and K and adults in D and E. That way, the adults can talk to each other and supervise one child each, and the children are separated. I saw a family with the kids in D and E and the kids were going nuts playing with each other over the partition (and climbing over it). Your 15 and 16 A and D plan is good too, although my kids would be constantly standing on the seat to talk to their sibling over the partition.
